As expected, all of the Marvel Now promo booklet has now leaked to Reddit, 4Chan and more reputable sites. I have to admit, despite the red saturation of these scans, these are great promo images, so say what you will about raising the prices and rebooting too many times, a great cover will often garner excitement anyway. I love the Batman riff in the Squirrel Girl cover by Erica Henderson, and Sara Pichelli’s Miles Morales/Spider-Gwen kissing is an instant classic.
Word on the street is that the X-men and Spidey will reboot down the line; there is more now to come; there is always more now to come.
